What is technical writing?
Technical writing has evolved in recent years and become a multidisciplinary skill set, with writers working for a diverse set of companies across many different industries. At the core of technical writing is the ability to break down complex technology, processes, and systems to make them easily understandable and accessible to a user.
Clear Point excels at finding writers who can create clear, accessible documentation for a technical expert, like an engineer or system administrator, as well as a non-technical end user.
Good technical writers tailor their writing to fit their audience, understanding that what fits in a wiki or an online help tutorial might be different than what works best on a short training video. They also often collaborate with user experience and e-Learning professionals to develop instructional materials, such as videos or walkthroughs, that are then built into a product or service.
Technical writers can also recommend content management systems and strategies and even act as community managers for their users.
How does Clear Point recruit technical writing candidates?
We help our clients find technical writers who are not only strong, effective communicators but have the background to handle the most complex technologies. We do this by sending their most relevant writing samples and profile to our clients and communicating closely with both parties to help accelerate the process and find the right fit.
